Veneers are a simple solution to gaining a gorgeous, gleaming smile. At Worldwide Beauty and Dental Hospital, we offer veneers in laminate and porcelain that are strong and stain-resistant while leaving your tooth structure as intact as possible. Treated just like normal teeth, veneers can be brushed and flossed to maintain your dazzling new look.
The time frame for veneers is two days for 1-4 and 3-5 days for five or more, making it possible to make over your smile in a small time frame.
In just two appointments, you can align your teeth with laminate veneers. At the first appointment, your dentist will prepare your teeth to receive the veneers, then take impressions to have them custom-created. At a follow-up, resin cement is applied to the teeth, then hardened with a light beam. The veneers will look completely natural, fitting in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are especially effective for teeth that are discoloured, have eroded enamel, are decayed or chipped and uneven. At the initial appointment, your dentist will evaluate you and prepare the teeth that are to receive the veneers. After taking impressions, your veneers are fabricated, then fitted at a subsequent appointment using a strong resin cement and a specialised light.
Types of Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers, also referred to as ceramic, can be made from different materials including pressed ceramic or stacked ceramic. Pressed are strong but may be thicker than other types, while stacked can be easily customised for each person.
A new type of porcelain called lithium disilicate is extremely durable, allowing even people who grind their teeth to be candidates. CAD/CAM technology is used to create this type of veneer.
Ensuring Long-lasting Results
After you’ve received your veneers, it’s essential to practice healthy oral hygiene habits including regular brushing and flossing along with periodic dental checkups. With proper care, they can last up to 20 years. Though the veneer itself cannot decay, the tooth structure under it is still subject to damage, including gum disease, which can weaken the veneer.
It’s important not to brush your teeth too vigorously to avoid damage to the gums. Similarly, excessive force from nail biting, chewing ice or opening packages with your teeth can lead to chips, cracks or erosion.
Finally, you can ensure that the dental cement that holds the veneer in place doesn’t become discoloured by avoiding coffee, tea, soy sauce, tomato sauce, berries and smoking.
